    Default Where to subscribe for Strait Times newspaper?

    Wanted to subscribe the newspaper, The Strait Times. I went to the web and saw that I had to pay for 1 year subscription. Was told that there's people doing distributing of newspaper charging at lower price (ain't sure) and I can also pay by monthly.

    Do anyone had contacts for it?

    Many thanks

    wake up really early and talk to them when they are delivering the papers

    or ask your neighbours for the contact, it can be found on the invoice

    different areas have different distributors

    Not too sure, but maybe you could get a copy of any Straits time. I think if I remembered correctly, there should be a small space somewhere on the front page where a number is printed for ordering the Straits Times.

    I normally don't buy ST nowadays, depnding mostly on the free copies of Today

    ortega is right. That's what my aunt did. But I subscribed for Straits Times subscription for 2 year at AXS station. Saves me 20% by signing up 2 years.

    Call 63883838 and deal with SPH directly. The good thing about subscribing from SPH is that you can charge your subscription to your credit card. Besides, they also gave me a subscription gift, a portable radio in my case, when I signed up sometime back.

    i believe that the distributor charges you the same price for the newspaper + $1 delivery charge (per month)

    correct me if i am wrong

    Contact SPH and they will send your local delivery vendor to deal with you, as in collecting your subscription each month. You can call SPH or the vendor to stop anytime for a short period or cancel, unless you are on long-term contract.

    interestingly i quit subscriping after i notice 75% of the paper is just
    advertisement.

    open a 2 page spread and see how many percent is news and adverts.
    If you need local news , go for the chinese papers
    if you need international news go goggle news

    why so difficult just to subscribe? i just approach a newspaper stand nearby my block (i believe there should be one too near your block), and ask them if they can deliver. they say yes, and the rest is history. Pay monthly.
